Trivia / TRON 2.0

  • Celebrity Voice Actor:
    • Rebecca Romijn-Stamos as Mercury.
    • Bruce Boxleitner reprises his role as Alan.
  • Creator Killer: Disney gave this very little in the way of advertising or support, and Monolith folded less than a year after the game's launch; they were resurrected and produced Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and its sequel.
  • Genius Bonus: Probably (but maybe not) coincidental, the element of mercury was used as a germicide, and is still used in sterilizing lamps. The color of those lamps is roughly the same shade as her and Jet's circuitry!
  • Name's the Same: The Tron Legacy code in-game has nothing to do with TRON: Legacy, aside from launching a few dozen jokes in the fandom about how both manage to cause damage to everything in range.
  • Recycled Script: Don't make a drinking game out of how many plot points and pieces of character design from this game got recycled for TRON: Legacy and/or TRON: Evolution. (See Alternate Continuity)
    • Jet himself splits the difference between Sam Flynn (Spin-Offspring, Playful Hacker, troubled adolescence, apparently apathetic to Encom's trouble) and Beck the Renegade (Hero with Bad Publicity and a very troubled relationship with his father/mentor figure)
    • Ma3a's appearance and function was recycled into Iso leader Radia
    • Thorne's costume, coloration, status as a living virus, unleashing hordes of corrupted Programs on the system, and merely being an Unwitting Pawn can be seen in Abraxas.
    • The initial goal of the protagonist is to rescue his father.
    • Upon arrival in cyberspace, our hero is immediately sent to the game arena (franchise staple by now)
    • Jet is rescued from certain death by a mysterious female ally working for his dad
    • There are a couple levels which involve breaking into the enemy headquarters to steal back Jet's confiscated disc.
    • The fact that Flynn allegedly went insane and vanished (per the spin-off comic), and Tron's fate is unknown to 2.0's characters, also play very nicely into Patchwork Fic.
    • Sora's lightcycle and armor designs in KingdomHeartsII are also similar to Jet's.
  • Role Reprisal: Played straight with Bruce Boxleitner as Alan Bradley. And, yes, as Tron in the Killer App sequel. Cindy Morgan's role is a double subversion. Played sideways in the Killer App sequel where Corey Burton played the mysterious, malicious User with the same David Warner impersonation he used for Sark and Master Control in Kingdom Hearts II.
  • Those Two Actors: Boxleitner and Morgan. Sure, they were in the first film together (as Alan and Tron and Lora and Yori). Then there was Bring 'Em Back Alive. But while Boxleitner's in a straight-up Role Reprisal, Morgan's role as Ma3a plays it a bit sideways until The Reveal, that is.
